    Q
    Could Siesta Fire Ant Bait accidentally attract birds?
    After spraying lawn- noticed numerous Doves feeding in grass. Suspect they are eating my Siesta?? Thank you in advance for you prompt response.
    A

    Siesta Insecticide Fire Ant Bait is formulated from soybean oil and corn grit so might be slightly attractive to birds, but they would have to eat their body weight or more to be affected.  The active ingredient is only enough to harm a small fire ant.
